Spanning the area from medieval Kandy in the south to the first capital of Anuradhapura in the north, over to the second capital of Polonnaruwa in the east and incorporating the spectacular cave temple of Dambulla and rock citadel of Sigiriya in the center, Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle is dense with the superb ancient sites and the country’s fascinating history.

Whether your trip to Sri Lanka includes the stunning beaches in the south, the lush highlands terraced with tea plantations or a wildlife safari in one of its national parks, it’s worth making the effort to venture into the country’s heart to explore the Cultural Triangle to get a deeper sense of history.
